Saving Your Home from the Storm
It's no secret that your home can incur an overwhelming amount of damage from fire disasters; but what about water?
It's the middle of the night you wake up to the noise of water running. You get out of bed and quickly come to the realization that a water line has broken. What do you do?
Many property owners take the necessary steps to plan and prevent a fire from happening in their property but what do you do in the event of unexpected water leaks?
Water leaks can occur from pipe burst after freezing temperature, shifts in your home's foundation, and corrosion.
What to do if your pipes leak:
The first thing you need to do is shut off the source so that the water stops. It is important to ensure that the water stops in response to turning off the valve. In example, the supply line to the sink has burst. You turn off the valve to stop the water, but what if the water keeps spraying all over???
It is not uncommon for old shut off valves to go bad to the point that when you try shutting them off, it doesn't work. If this is the case in your property, you will need to locate the main water valve. This valve is usually located at the water meter for city water. If you have a well, it is typically located by your pressure tank.
